Abstract

The synthesis and analysis of a modified polymerizable dithienylethene based on the previous design (Feringa, B.L et al. Langmuir 2008, 24, 6334) is reported. The photochemical and electrochemical properties of the monomer in solution have been compared to the previous design. The fluorescent properties were found to be different, while the behaviour observed by UV/vis and Raman spectroscopy was as expected for a dithienylethene. The compound polymerized on glassy carbon and ITO forming thin films which were characterized by cyclic voltammetry. The polymer was able to ring close upon irradiation with visible light which was shown by UV/vis spectroscopy.
